Due Regard

Due Regard is practiced when the practice teacher:

  • Has the specialist skills required to support the placement learning outcomes
  • Is from the same part of the register and field of practice as the student
  • Supervises and monitors progress throughout this period
  • Assesses component skills related to the programme outcomes

Practice teachers who assess the SCPHN students fitness for practice at the end of their programme must be registered in the same part of the NMC register, that is SCPHN, and be from the same field of practice, that is school nursing or health visiting.
